I liked this bit:
They additionally propitiated Stercutius (named from stercus or excrement), the god of dung, who was particularly important to farmers when fertilising their fields with manure. He had a close relationship with Saturn, the god of agriculture. Early Christians seem to have found Stercutius particularly ridiculous; he was a target of mockery for St. Augustine of Hippo in his book City of God in the early 5th century AD.
I am imagining Augustine saying
"And they have this god that takes care of shit! You spread it on the fields and pray to him and you get crops, that presumably taste of shit!
How ridiculous! They need Christianity in which the soul
is addressed - I don't know where I be if I did not believe that God sent Himself to Earth, killed himself, although He didn't die, and then came alive again, thus I am sin free!
Those pagans, eh? What you gonna do with 'em?"
